I’m going to give it you straight here, because I care about you and treasure your friendship: the Phillies aren’t really that good at baseball right now. AND, this season may turn out to be quite a slog. I know, tough news to hear. I’m not saying that there’s no hope of us turning things around–I mean after all, we have ROY MOTHERDUCKING HALLADAY–it’s just that, things tend to look reallllly bleak after you lose three out of four to the Pirates.
But I checked with the Pope and, no matter how bad we suck, we’re still allowed to make fun of the Mets.
So here’s a scouting report for the upcoming series.
Feels like, “A cup in the middle of the sea.”
The 700 Level reports that the Phillies have added catcher Ronny “Big Fat” Paulino to the roster. This makes them three-deep at the catcher position, and speculation now is that Coste may soon become part of a trade package.
Meanwhile, the Mets continue to bolster their bullpen with the addition of J.J. Putz. His new job will be to hold down the lead in save opportunities until Francisco Rodriguez can come out in the ninth inning to deliver the killing blow. (I can’t wait to see how they screw this up.)
Along with David Wright, this means New York will now have two Putzes in the dugout for 2009.
